Chief Justice Rehnquist hospitalized


Chief Justice William Rehnquist was taken to a hospital for observation and tests overnight after complaining of a fever, a U.S. Supreme Court spokeswoman said Wednesday. An ambulance took Rehnquist to Virginia Hospital Center in Arlington on Tuesday night, court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said. Arberg gave no indication when the 80-year-old justice, who has been battling thyroid cancer, would be released.
Not to be ghoulish about this, but this seems to increase the likelihood of a second Supreme Court nomination battle this summer. I hope Rehnquist recovers, but certainly his time on the Court cannot last much longer.
